WHAT MUST I COMPLY WITH?
Before entering Singapore, please ensure that you have:
- valid insurance coverage for your vehicle for the duration of your vehicle’s stay in Singapore
- valid road tax for your vehicle
- settled outstanding fines for your vehicle (Before you enter Singapore, check online at www.axs.com.sg for outstanding offences and you can pay online via http://www.onemotoring.com.sg or https://onepay.onemotoring.com.sg. If you are in Singapore, you can pay either online or via the available payment channels listed here)
- an Autopass Card with sufficient value
- an In-Vehicle Unit (IU) – either install a permanent one at IU Service Centres or rent one at Tuas/Woodlands Checkpoints – if your vehicle needs to pass through priced roads during Electronic Road Pricing (ERP) hours
Ensure that all travellers in your vehicle are carrying valid passports. You must also not bring any prohibited and controlled items into Singapore.
If you just renewed your vehicle’s road tax or purchased a new motor insurance cover, visit www.onemotoring.com.sg/ivep/insureapp to update your road tax and insurance validity in your Autopass Card at least a week before driving into Singapore.

The requirements for Malaysia-registered vehicles also apply to Thailand-registered cars and motorcycles driving into Singapore. In addition, Thailand-registered vehicles must purchase Malaysia and Singapore insurance coverage for the respective durations of your stay in the 2 countries.
DO I NEED TO PAY ANY TOLL, VEHICLE ENTRY PERMIT FEES, OR RECIPROCAL ROAD CHARGE?
Yes. The toll charges are calculated based on the type of vehicle and the checkpoint used. Vehicle Entry Permit fees are calculated based on the type of vehicle, and the day and time you enter and leave Singapore. The Reciprocal Road Charge applies to all foreign-registered cars on a per-entry basis when they enter Singapore via the Tuas or Woodlands Checkpoint.
WHAT DO I DO AT THE CHECKPOINT?
When you drive through the Checkpoint, insert your Autopass Card into the card readers installed at the immigration booths to register your vehicle's entry and exit records.
Motorists are advised to familiarise themselves with payments of fees and charges when using the checkpoints. You can approach our officers for assistance at any of the Vehicle Entry Permit (VEP) / Toll offices at the checkpoints. Please note that a fine of up to S$1,000 may be imposed if fees and charges are not deducted at the immigration booths.
It is an offence if you:
- drive into Singapore without an Autopass Card for your vehicle
- use an Autopass Card belonging to another foreign-registered vehicle
- did not insert your Autopass Card into the card reader in the immigration booth upon entry and exit
- use a CashCard/ local CEPAS card to register your entry/exit records or for toll / VEP payment
